GNH Design August Meetup - Structural Graphics

Designers - for August we have a great meetup planned. See the description below, and check out to get a taste of the super-cool stuff that will be presented.

Please RSVP - thanks!

Date: August 1, 2007
Time: 5.45PM - 8PM
Place: Bentara, New Haven



Erik Hluchan and Geoff Matheson, designers from Structural Graphics, will speak about dimensional and package design, and show examples of incredible dimensional marketing solutions created by Structural Graphics.

Structural Graphics is the nation's leading designer and producer of high-impact dimensional marketing solutions. They create revolutionary paper solutions for top companies and marketing firms. Their capabilities include paper engingeering, 3D special effects, lenticulars, sound modules and light, plus every job is hand assembled. Some of S.G.'s clients include: BMW, Volkswagen, Ford, HBO, Nickelodeon, Smirnoff, Chase Manhattan, Citibank, Microsoft, Samsung, CIA, among many others. S.G. has done work for large companies in almost every industry, with a large client base in the pharmaceutical industry.

Erik has worked for S.G. for almost 20 years and is currently the creative director. He is responsible for many of S.G.'s innovative and revolutionary designs. Geoff Matheson just started at S.G. 6 months ago, and is a production artist. Geoff is part of the GNH group and thought the group should be introduced to the amazing work done at S.G.

They will discuss how a dimensional design is created, and the steps it goes through from conception to completion. This includes the initial comps created for a potential job, and the following preliminary comps, die drawings, dies and final hand assembled materials, all of which are main stages on the project timeline. They will bring samples from Structural Graphics to hand out and discuss.

    Structural Graphics gave a wonderful presentation-- it was great to learn about aspects of the business that are little known or underrepresented! It was also really, really fun to play with their products! :)

    I don't know what to say, it was awesome and cool to see how those types of projects are made and the work that goes in to them, and the turn around time for such a project!? That's just crazy! Loved the amount of samples and meeting a bunch of new people too.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
